    Currently riding around 150km a week in a relatively sustainable fashion but would like to add something.
    Was thinking about joining a gym and doing some upper-body/core but also some spin bike intervals? Not sure what specifically yet, but likely short and high intensity. Good idea?

    Garmin connect is helpfully telling me it can't connect to my device. No surprise, it's in another city.

    I think that might be closed unfortunately. I think there is a hackspace or makerspace or something still somewhere though.
    +1 for Manchester being expensive though

    I'm now of the opinion that if you're not prepared to do the dirty work yourself then you don't get to eat it.

    This was the mindset that led me to veggie. Hilariously inspired by the opening of Game of Thrones.

    Would potentially be interested in cranks

    Also Fuel, good veggie cafe with decent music nights.
    I'd probably live there, just thought I'd warn about many students.

    Withington is a fair bit more studenty. I know some grads who live there not many.

    Yeah Levenshulme and Hulme/Whalley Range seem to be the up and coming areas. Chorlton has been the hip end for decades now I think, and is pretty expensive. I live there and love it though. Wouldn't go for didsbury myself. There are some nice bits but more wankers?

    +1 for it being great. Came here in 2010 and never looked back.

    Similar in what way? It's quite hard to get a feel of a place by googling it's name (don't know Glasgow at all really).
    Northern Quarter is great for bars, a few indie shops etc, but will probably cost you an arm and a leg to live in now. Ancoats is more residential but right on the outskirts of NQ, got some cool little places and a ridiculous amount flats to choose from. Castlefield I know less well but I get the impression it might be a little more yuppie.
